A-list favorite beachside resort with personal butlers, three pools, and a luxe spa outside raucous Cabo San Lucas
Mediterranean playground meets beach chic, with white-on-white buildings, desert landscaping and cascading pools that tumble down the hillside to the beach. Once you get a view of the Pacific coast from the lobby during check-in—chilled hibiscus juice in hand—you’ll never take an ocean view for granted again. Whether you opt for a standard Garden View Junior Suite or the Three-Bedroom Presidential Villa, you can fall asleep in a kingsize bed to the flicker of flames in your wood-burning fireplace, or wind down your evening with some stargazing, using your own telescope on your private patio. Larger suites have such pampering extras as private Jacuzzis and rooftop sundecks. When it’s time to clean up for a date at one of the resort’s three restaurants, the enormous limestone bathrooms include walk-in closets, a vanity area, and deep soaking tubs and separate glassed-in showers all stocked with Bulgari Thé Vert amenities. Las Ventanas is all about the little touches that go above and beyond. The staff will unpack your suitcase on arrival and then return with a custom-designed sewing kit to match your wardrobe; turn-down service includes a bespoke scent that will lull you to sleep. Pool butlers see to your every sunbathing need: They will clean your sunglasses and bring you iPods and current best-sellers to pass the time while you sip the smoothies and popsicles they periodically pass out. Dining options range from Baja-Mediterranean fare in sea-facing The Restaurant, to Mexican tapas and ceviche in the more casual Sea Grill. Special add-on experiences include one-on-one cooking classes in the chef’s garden and tequila tastings at the Sushi & Ceviche Bar that will stock you up with stories to tell your untanned friends back home.
In the Area
Though the nightlife is thumping and the Marina district has plenty of restaurants, bars and shops, the best reason to head into tourist-favorite Cabo San Lucas is to charter one of Las Ventanas’ three yachts for a day of snorkeling around the famous Los Arcos rock formation, or go deep-sea fishing for the enormous marlin that have been attracting sportsmen to Cabo for decades. In the opposite direction, the hamlet of San Jose del Cabo is a much better bet, with plentiful boutiques and galleries peddling local artisanal crafts and wares. Many of the resorts in the area are self-contained, and the restaurant options are limited, but for a great meal out, venture into the hills to Flora Farm for a gourmet multi-course dinner prepared with organic ingredients grown a few feet from your table, or live music and drinks in the beer garden.
